    Female Game Characters Photoshopped to Average American Proportions

    It's very rare for women to grow muscle at the rate of men do. Tifa looks fine for a brawler who lives in obscene poverty. None of these girls look like they have "nothing" on them at all. You're position is ridiculous. They look more or less like normal, fit women. This is just typical skinny...

    Female Game Characters Photoshopped to Average American Proportions

    No, it really, very sincerely is not. Morbidly thin is if they look anorexic, but they don't. They look fit. They look healthy. At best you can say that some of them look a little unrealistically proportioned, but none of them look "morbid".

    Female Game Characters Photoshopped to Average American Proportions

    Now that I think of it, since Tifa is a part of the dystopian Midgar's underclass, it's very likely she's probably been through a food crisis or five since moving from Nibelheim, and has probably starved on more than a few occasions. It could almost be classed as offensive to portray her as...

    Female Game Characters Photoshopped to Average American Proportions

    I'm not sure how changing trained fighters like Lara Croft and Tifa into fatties is supposed to be more realistic.

    No, you don't date rape/gay erase a character in Fire Emblem Fates

    It's pretty fucking sad that sites like Destructoid and IBT are willing to source a fucking tumblr post by someone who has not even played the game in order to help spread a controversy that doesn't accurately reflect reality. Fortunately, Fire Emblem fans have gone out of their way to...

    Is game of thrones a bit shit?

    It's not "a bit shit", it's been consistently shit for awhile. S2, S4 and S5 have all been pretty bad.

    Poll: Game of Thrones - Who is the most evil character?

    Gregor Clegane is pretty irredeemably evil.

    How did The Escapist's culture change so much?

    Actually he's never said he's pro-GG or ever tweeted in support of the hashtag. I mean you might be able to argue that he's sympathetic towards GamerGate or behind closed doors he supports GamerGate, but there's no way you can say he "quite openly is".

    The Hugo Awards

    "Rigged" was hyperbole, but is there discrimination against conservative writers by the voterbase is recent years? Absolutely. I haven't been following this thread so I don't know if this was posted already, but it's a good run down of the situation...

    I like listening to ASMR that's just regular, natural sounds, not people speaking. The stuff with people and community "celebrities" always seemed awkward and never quite triggered the feeling for me.

    Game of Thrones Season 5 - Wars Past And Wars To Come

    Ah, I was hoping this was going to be a screener review... Shoutout to his Grace, Stannis Baratheon, though.

    The Hugo Awards

    This was how John C. Wright put it. I'm inclined to agree with him. All these people complaining about the Hugo's being "rigged" all of a sudden had no problem when it was rigged for the past 5 years, except now it's no longer being rigged in an ideology they favour, but instead in no...

    Hibike! Euphonium might be neat.

    Let's defend berated games in a series we like

    The seal piece in the water slums. Oh my god. No, but I really liked Jak II as well. I wasn't aware that it was disliked by most people.

    Is Bloodborne the Resident Evil game we deserve?

    "Action Horror" is probably a title I could agree with, but I can't agree with "Survival Horror". But now I guess I'm just splitting hairs.
